    "One does not simply walk into Mordor. Its Black Gates are guarded by more than just Orcs. There is evil there that does not sleep, and the Great Eye is ever watchful. It is a barren wasteland, riddled with fire and ash and dust, the very air you breathe is a poisonous fume." Boromir

            Our house came with Samsung dishwasher, fridge, washer, dryer. Already replaced the dishwasher with a Bosch after a few years since it got a small leak. Fridge is still good though I've read about ice-maker issues; ours is still good though. Washer/dryer still good, from what I hear there's less that can go wrong there even though they're far from the best brand. I wouldn't have bought any of them, but felt no need to replace them immediately.

                Haha. I figured you knew to avoid Samsung

                there are new build townhomes in south lake Elmo that are listed for around 400k. Like 3 bed 3 bath. It’s insane. They have to be built right over the epicenter of your company’s poison dump lol

                im petrified of new builds and low quality so really only looking at things 20 or more years old

                        No, that's just because it's a Samsung. It'll do everything brilliantly except be a fridge.

                        • How I can start repair at home? I want to renovate my bedroom. It's really difficult to find something affordable, nice and qualitative. After finding octane seating customer service I decided to ordered some of the furniture there. Their furniture is beautiful and affordable. Hope it will be really nice.

                              • Neat. I found out Xcel installed a smart gas meter sometime last year and now I'm pulling in live readings down to the cubic foot level (0.01 therms) using just a usb dongle*. I also managed to setup an automation to scrape Xcel's website for monthly gas rates to give me an estimated cost. Now I have live data showing how much gas we're using and the true cost of things like the water heater.

                                they're going to be installing a smart electrical meter in about a month so I'll be grabbing that data too. I'm actually hoping to lower my energy bill by taking advantage of the demand rates that will eventually be coming.

                                *same dongle that listens for the radio signal my water meter puts out. Which is cool.

                                edit: I explained all of this to my wife and she cut right through the bulls_hit.

                                me: *excitedly explained everything*
                                her: so what's this do for us?
                                me: well, we can find ways to be more energy efficient and lower our gas costs
                                her: oh, so it's just a way for you to tell me to be colder.
